Vuzix intros AR eyewear

Vuzix on Wednesday at the Game Developers Conference demonstrated what it calls the first consumer Augmented Reality video eyewear. Comprised of the company's existing VR920 virtual reality video eyewear and a new augmented reality accessory kit developed in conjunction with metaio. Vuzix claims the technology will bring a new dimension to gaming, educational and business industries. For its demo, flat images in a book were seen in 3D by the wearer of the device.

The kit includes the CamAR clip-on USB camera and the PhasAR wireless augmented reality input controller that work together to let users view a combination of real and virtual images, adding 3D effects to 2-D virtual objects. The PhasAR has a computer mouse-like support to allow users to control virtual objects in 3D space. It has a six-degree of freedom tracking system and sends tracking and position information of where the user is touching to the computer.

Vuzix has not announced shipping dates or prices for the AR accessory kit.
